Perfect for the upcoming hot weather. Give it a chance. Monks’ Wit, Belgian style wheat ale, was developed specifically at the suggestion of Greg Brown for the New Mexico market as a high end, premium session beer for discerning consumers. Like Monks’ Ale, Monks’ Wit uses only the finest ingredients and imported hops and yeast. ABV 2.75% jsmerig (1590) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2010
On tap at the Spinnerstown Hotel. Very nice aromas with hints of bananas and spice. Sweet flavor with a crisp clean finish. Different from the normal over sweet finish of some Belgian ales. crusianbeer (116) - Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2011
bottle from local shop, lots of sediment at the bottle, can see it without opening it.
Reviewed by style:
Pours a nice cloudy white with very little head, with this style I expect more head. Belgian yeast on the nose with a bit of coriander and a tiny hint of lemon and some pepper.
Taste is what I would expect, but has more lemon zest on the palate than the nose gives. Something sweet in this, but it doesnt hit you until the finish, oddly enough. Finish is very dry, quite nice. If I was to guess, i wouldnt think this was made by monks in the desert of New Mexico. Pretty decent foray into beer for a start up. tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Has a cloudy golden color. Smell is alive with citrus and spice. Taste is mild compared to the aroma, light spice and citrus. Overall a pretty good beer. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12oz bottle, from Pat. Half hazy golden color. Thin white head. Good webs of lace. Some orange citrus, belgian yeast, cracker. Mild spice. A touch of something odd, maybe corn. I don’t mind it. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Easy to swig. Nice zesty spicy taste. Moderate sweet, good mild bitter. Solid belgian wit. Nice to enjoy with my sandwich.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of wheat, citrus peel, light bubble gum and banana. Flavor is very much the same. Mouth feel is light with high fizzy carbonation. Not bad. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2011
What is this? Pecos NM?!? What!?! 12oz bottle pours out clear pale gold with micro thin white head. The aroma has faint amounts of grainy malts and yeasty spices as well as a wealth of estery sweet corn mixing with a distinctive white wine aromatic. The taste is similar with a white wine fruity, semi tart and dry quality nuanced by mild yeasty spices, a touch of orange peel, grainy malts and a sense of corn kernels into the finish. Wow! Tasty and interesting and a bit odd too. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2012
This poured a hazy whitish yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of coriander, light clove and some orange peel.. Flavor was more on the dry side, a good amount of spice, and a grainy fisnish, Decent. cheap (5857) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
On tap at the bocktown. Nice looking white beer. Smell is slightly hazy and typical wit. Good co2 initially. Almost has an apple background. Some very slight bitterness but a very good example of a wit, I like this. Yes, a very friendly and easy beer that goes down with a thank you. Easy to get along with, one of my favorite styles. Has manners, never over the top. The slight bitterness dows yeild a little bit of medicine in the finihs and probably its the only drawback. Good overall beer drinken experience. Yes, that finish does have soem medicine in there. marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle from my friend Bob. Pours hazy golden with a modest white head and a fruity aroma. There is a light spicy wheat flavor with some banana ester and a dry finish.
